while this product might be good for some people, it is not for me. I like the price though. How can you fail with only a few dollars? However, as far as performance goes, it does nothing for me. It is hard like candle. I cannot spread it. If you rub it on your skin, it hurts. I don't even live in cold climate. I don't find it moisturizing at all. As a matter of fact, my skin gets itchy and red from using it. This cocoa stick clog the pores on my skin and cause skin bump. I tried to use it as a lip conditioner but it cause redness and irritation around my mouth. I don't know if this is simply my allergy toward this product or if anyone else share similar experience. I tried products that only contain partial cocoa butter mix with other moisturizing oills and ingredients but my skin simply does not agree with cocoa. I read that this cocoa is supposed to be good with scars and stretch marks because of the vitamins so I tried very hard to like this natural product. Unfortunately it failed me. The good thing is that it isn't that expensive so give it a try if you skin is less sensitive.

I have to say I am totally impressed! I have to be honest that I am a firm believer on expensive skin/body care products but after almost a year tiring to get rid of a spot of chicken skin (keratosis pilaris) on my chest I am basically desperate to try anything that might help. So when I was wandering around Walgreens and saw that for $1.59, I was like, what the hell lets give it a try! Then, miracle happened! So first of all, the package is not fancy but for $1.59, I don't really care that much. Its not the most user friendly packaging on the planet but I didn't experience any inconvenient people listed here. It is solid when you push the stick out but when you start applying on your skin it melts due to your body temperature (according to the Cococare website the product melts at 90į F or 32į C). The smell is amazing. I am normally not a big fan of sweet scent but the chocolatey scent of the stick smells incredible. I have been applying on the chicken skin spot on my chest and my shoulder after shower for only 3 days and I have already seen a big improvement on the condition. The chicken skin becomes less dry and rough, redness has been reduced and the size of affected area is reducing! I am still testing on the stretch marks but to be honest, the chicken skin is more of my concern and priority at the moment. The other thing I really like about this product is its ingredient. Its 100% cocoa butter with absolutely nothing else. With the very cheap price and its amazing power of getting rid of my chicken skin, I am sure this is a must have item in my bathroom.

The package is not good but it's not bad, for $1 im not complaining. I'd rather pay $1 for it with bad packaging then paying what the competitors like Palmers charge $5 for their fancy swivel stick. How messy the product is depends on which region you live in. I live in MD so its usually hard in the winter and softer in the summer, simple chemistry! I used this in high school and that was the clearest my face has been. 0 spots or uneven areas. For the last two years I've been using products from Lush and they have been working but I still have light spots all over. After only a week of using this stick again I'm already seeing huge progress. When I used this product it is very oily texture but it goes away and doesn't block my pores so Im fine with it being oily. I'll give and two months of putting it on at night and my face will be clear.

Terrible packaging. Bad quality cocoa butter. The lid doesn't fit properly. Pushing the product up from the bottom of the stick is a very messy process. Yes, it's cheap but that's about the only thing good about it! I buy 100% cocoa butter from Akoma, an online retailer in the UK. I like their ethics and the purity of their products. However cheap Cococare is, it's still too much for what you get!

I bought the Cococare 100% Cocoa Butter Yellow Stick at Walgreens for $1.59. Not too pricey at all. The only reason why I give it 4/5 is because I haven't used it that long, but so far, I love it. It's cheap, it smells great, it's smooth and easy to apply, it's the perfect size for traveling, or just keeping in my purse for whenever I need it. I'm 17, and I've had bad stretch marks since I was 14 from where I took a growth spurt and gained some weight. From what I've seen, this product is gonna be a lifesaver. They're already starting to fade. I definitely recommend this product, and I definitely plan on buying more.

This is an unbelievable little product, wont be without it, have spent hundreds on skincare and tried everything this is a constant go to must have, got it for less than a £ from I herb a brilliant site, have one in my bag by the side of my bed, great for lips, all over the face, overnight my skin feels so soft, great for nails, cuticles and rubbed into your hair when your ends are dry. Smells divine soooo edible, what a wonderful natural little product to slip into your routine. Fav product of all time out of all the myriad of products I have bought over the years. Bought loads for my family ...... try it!!!

I don't know what other people are talking about when it comes to all the packaging problems they're having, but I haven't had any. The packaging isn't flimsy. I don't have problems getting the lid off. The product doesn't move all around inside the tube. So I don't know. Maybe I was lucky not to get a defective one?
Anyway, I use this on my face around my nose and under my eyes for extra moisturizing. I really like it. It is hard, but for what I use it for, that's a good thing because that makes it easier to get a thin application and not apply too much. I also like the smell. I want to use it on my stretch marks too, but just haven't gotten around to it.

I went to four stores and could not locate the Palmer's Swivel Stick, so I caved and bought this thing, which had been staring at me mockingly at each empty shelf I found. Immediately, I didn't like that it could be opened in store...I checked through them, some were depleted, some beaten up, I found a decent one. This smells like chocolate, is hard but can be softened with the heat of your skin. This packaging is an abomination. They would have been better off just throwing the product in a zip lock bag. The cap destroys the product, the tube is too loose so the product moves around, and the cap is flat out hard to remove without cutting the butter or getting your hands nasty.

Cococare's 100% Cocoa Butter stick is what it says it is: cocoa butter, in a yellow tube that you push up. The tube itself is quite flimsy. It's not my favorite stick packaging because it tends to fall apart in my purse. Because it's totally cocoa butter, the stick itself is initially rock hard. I rub it on my hand, roll it between my palms, or run it under hot water to soften the cocoa butter a bit, and then it's a little more workable. Cocoa butter works really well for moisturizing my dry hands and on scars. I even use it to moisturize my neck. It's a little dry and hard still for my lips. The best part, though, is that it smells exactly like a candy bar. I wish all cocoa butter products smelled exactly like this one.

im using this all over my face at bedtime for marks/shallow acne scars/uneven skin tone. my complexion looks so much healthier and glowy. my skin tone is looking more even and smooth.also i had a couple of pimples that went away without leaving a mark like they usually do.100% cocoa butter is very hard and hard to scoop out of a jar. thats why i love the fact that this in stick form.its so much easier to apply. i just wet my face with warm water and then glide the stick all over my face.i've seen this stuff around for years and never thought to try it.cant believe that i've spent ridiculous amounts of money on creams that were suppose to lighten marks,even out skin tone, bring out radiance etc when the solution to my problems has been right in front of my eyes for less than 3 dollars!! i have very sensitive skin and this hasnt caused any breakouts or irritation. i also use cococare lip balm which makes my lips look so supple and glossy. my lips no longer get chapped like they did before. im now in love with cocoa butter! if you are going to use cocoa butter for your face, i'd recommend 100% cocoa butter. some of those cocoa butter creams are loaded with irritating ingredients.
UPDATE: after a while, this started causing HUGE breakouts. great stuff though, wish i could have continued using it.

Iím surprised at how different Queen Heleneís 100% cocoa butter is from Cococareís100% cocoa butter.
I got the Cococare from walgreens for 59c because they are not going to carry it in the store any longer, and the Queen Helene was from the dollar general for just over a buck.
The first thing I noticed was the smell was different on them, with queen heleneís smelling stronger, which I donít get since they are supposed to be the same thingÖ
Cococare seems to be a little harder than the qhís and it seems much better for skin than for lips as its not to moisturizing or long lasting on the lips, I still have my favorites for lips that these canít replace,lol :)
I can easily use both on my face, hands, cuticles, wherever, and they will sink in, but I usually use it lips or dry spots.
Qhís goes on a little smoother, and melts faster, with cococareís I feel like I have to rub it more, or on my hand to start up the melting.
I would definitely keep buying the queen helene one since cococare isnít being sold at the walgreens by me anymore.
the packaging cracks, and when its near the bottom, its just awkward to try and use it by shoving your finger up its hole! lol

This yellow cocoa butter stick helped me through a bad stretch-mark situation back when I was recovering from anorexia and gaining weight. I developed reddish-purple stretch marks along the tops of my thighs and breasts, so I decided to try a cococare stick I found at CVS. Within a month of applying the cocoa butter to them daily after a shower, they were barely visible. The price was dirt cheap, about $2 for a tube that lasts for months. The only negative is that the butter is in a solid form, so it takes a little rubbing and body heat to get it to slide over your skin. I'll definitely purchase it again when I find new stretch marks.

I got this for maybe two dollars at Wal-Mart. I had been using Aura Cacia pure cocoa butter some scars that I got on my back and arms in an ATV accident. The stick seems to have slighty lower-quality cocoa butter than the jar of Aura Cacia, but it still has that delicious smell and is vastly easier to use. Pure cocoa butter has a really hard texture that flakes when you try to scoop it or break it. It does melt very slowly at body temperature, so you can just rub the end of the stick until it melts enough to glide along your skin. No flakes, no getting cocoa butter stuck under your nails and you can massage your scar while you apply it. It helps fade scars about as well as anything else I've tried. The key to really rub whatever you use into the scar to break up the fibrous tissue.

Good, natural but hard

This is a great cocoa butter stick you can apply to stretch marks or other small areas of the skin. It might be a little too sticky for larger areas, although you could probably warm it in your hands for a little bit to make it spread easier. Only 99 cents at Walgreen's. Great deal. It smells really good too.
